JASH has lots of dash in the Commonwealth Cup (3.40).
Simon Crisford’s flyer has already gone close in this Group 1 level when just behind hotpot Ten Sovereigns at Newmarket in September. He looked better than ever when winning a Listed contest at HQ on his seasonal comeback last month.
He picked up well there and just about saw out the 7f. This drop back in distance looks a wise move and his staying power will be an asset in the dying yards.
The favourite will be hard enough to beat but he was pitched into the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket last time so this is a fair drop in trip. He did look more of a sprinter in that Classic but is short enough in the market.
Say Yeh in the opening Albany Stakes (2.30). DAAHYEH impressed the clock watchers when scorching home to win on her debut at Newmarket last month.
The form of that race has already been franked and she’s proven over this 6f trip which takes some getting for a two-year-old.
The ground may be a little on the dead side for the American raiders who would prefer it like a road. They are short in the betting meaning my fancy should be a double-figure price with every chance of hitting the frame at least.
There was lots to like about the way Kemble finished strongly over 5f when winning at Windsor last time. She gives the impression that this extra furlong will be right up her street.
Dive into PONDUS for the King Edward VII Stakes (3.05). James Fanshawe’s colt is taking a step up in class here but deserves it after a superb win at Sandown last time out.
He saw out the 1m2f trip well and gives the impression that stepping up again here will bring lots of improvement. He goes on any ground and has a lot more to offer with the yard’s horses running well.
Wizard's Royal Ascot tips for day four
Bangkok hated Epsom when fancied for the Derby last time and will be much happier on this more conventional track.
He won a Sandown Group 3 to put him in the Classic picture and is capable of bouncing back. Japan was a good third at Epsom and must be a big danger if that effort didn’t take too much out of him.
I fancy DESIROUS in the Sandringham Stakes (5.00). Ralph Beckett surely has more than a handicapper on his hands in this Kingman filly who impressed on comeback at Goodwood last time.
She has clearly trained on well as she left her already solid juvenile form behind when stepped up to this trip for the first time. There will surely be a lot more to come and her current mark of 88 looks on the lenient side to say the least.
I’m Available has been in excellent form and followed a Nottingham win with a good second here last time out. She likes this trip and is another on offer at an each-way price.
FUJAIRA PRINCE looks a royal bet in the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (5.35). Roger Varian’s five-year-old has few miles on the clock but has gone well on both starts this season when winning easily at Doncaster before finishing a good second in a hot race at York last time.
He had no issue seeing out this distance at his first attempt and should hit top gear fitness-wise now.
Corgi was third and Collide fourth in that race and they both have claims again from what look fair handicap marks.
Baghdad ran a good time on the clock when winning at Newmarket last time out. He kept digging out more when challenged and gets this distance really well.
